Good morning from Northside.

Good morning from Northside…

And this morning, we ran to get Mad Llama coffee, which isn’t exactly Northside but we just love their coffee and turkey sausage egg and cheese bagel sammich…

And our Saturday was off to a pretty darn good start. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„β˜•οΈβ€οΈ

Good evening from Northside.

It was very pretty outside this evening…

This rather sizable cross section of tree has mysteriously appeared atop the hill at the end of our street…

And good evening from Northside…

It was such a pretty evening that later we sat out on our front patio for a little bit and watched some of the Reds doubleheader…

We sat out on our front patio hoping the mosquitoes wouldn’t be as bad as in our back yard. But we still needed to load up on the bug spray even on our front porch. We had a fun Friday evening despite the mosquitoes. And the Reds split their doubleheader with the Pirates. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„β€οΈ

Good morning from Northside.

Good morning from Northside…

We walked to Sidewinder this morning to get coffees…

Our Friday morning got off to a really great start. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„β˜•οΈβ€οΈ

Hello from Northside.

It started out as a very grey and rainy morning…

Good morning from Northside…

But later this evening, it had turned into a really day…

Good evening from Northside…

And good evening from our backyard…

Hello from Northside. And hello four-day holiday weekend! πŸ˜€πŸŒ„β€οΈ

Hello September.

Can you believe that today is the first day of September? It’s crazy how fast the year has gone for pretty much staying at home for the last six months.

When we looked out our bedroom window this morning, we saw a new friend sitting on our window sill…

How cool is that? We haven’t seen a Praying Mantis in a quick minute.

Good morning from Northside…

The praying mantis was still hanging out after our morning walk…

When we were leaving Knoxville, the gas station by our hotel had a Cinnabon inside. We got a cinnamon roll to bring home with us and this morning, we got to eat it…

It was so good. I love cinnamon rolls. It reminded me a lot of the amazing cinnamon rolls that I used to get from Sidewinder in Northside.

Good evening from Northside…

We had spaghetti with garlic bread for dinner tonight…

I love spaghetti and garlic bread. That’s how it looks when I’m taking a photo of my spaghetti for the blog. And this is how my spaghetti looks after I take my photos and add more dust cheese right before I start eating…

After waiting for what seemed like forever, the guys from Ohio Basement Authority started working on waterproofing our basement today…

They were scheduling six to eight weeks out. And our day finally arrived. They were supposed to here this morning but the team got a flat tire on the way in from Columbus. So they got a bit of a late start. But we’re so excited that this project is finally getting started. πŸ˜€πŸ‘β€οΈ

Crumb cake & NYPD hoagies.

It was hard to get back into the swing of things today. Genifer got me this delicious crumb cake from Napoli Cafe when we stopped for coffee in North Top Sail Beach as we were starting our trip back home…

I didn’t go into Napoli Cafe with Genifer. I stayed in the car with Oscar…

Look at all that crumb topping…

It was as much crumb topping as it was cake. And it was delicious. Really good. One of the inadvertent themes of our trip was crumb cakes and crumbles. Without trying, I ate three crumb cakes during our trip. I think this last one was my favorite. It made getting back to work this morning a little bit easier.

I must be out of practice and a little bit rusty. This morning, I completely forgot to take photos of the sky from the top of the hill at the end of our street. But I made sure to remember this evening…

So good evening from Northside. We need to make a trip to the grocery store. We don’t really have very much food in our house right now. At all. So this evening we had an NYPD hoagie sammich party

NYPD isn’t just for pizza parties. Their hoagie sammiches are really good as well. Genifer’s favorite is NYPD’s Italian. And my favorite is their chicken fajita with bacon crumbles added. We always add a family-sized order of fries. The good part of not having any food in the house is getting to go out to eat which makes it kind of feel like we’re still on vacation. πŸ˜€πŸ°πŸ₯ͺ🍟❀️

Home sweet home.

It’s nice to visit new places but it’s also really nice to be home…

And good evening from Northside…

It’s nice to be home. πŸ˜€πŸ‘πŸΎβ€οΈ

Sunday coffee & pizza party!

After walking the dogs, we hoped in the car to go get coffee. It was foggy over on this side town…

I accidentally ordered Genifer a hot coffee from Mad Llama

Dang. Sorry about that, baby. When we got home, there were some really grey clouds over Northside…

Good afternoon from Northside…

This afternoon we went over to Taft’s Brewpourium for lunch…

Can you believe I forgot to take a photo of our pizza and wings? Crazy, right? We had another white pizza with prosciutto and tomatoes and Cherrywood BBQ wings. It was delicious as always!

Later, we played in the backyard for a bit…

Trips to Mad Llama Coffee and Taft’s Brewpourium make Sundays great.

A darn good Saturday.

Good morning from Northside…

We ran over to the grocery store to get some groceries for the week…

How adorable were these buttons?

If they would have been magnets, they would be home with us right now. And this llama pillow was pretty cute…

There were some good balloons today too. I got five on it with some stars…

There were a lot of Back-to-School balloons because it’s about that time….

And without a hint of irony, the Back-to-School balloons were right next to the Get Well Soon balloons…

There should have been a promotion, Buy any Back-to-School balloon, get one, Get Well Soon balloon for free.” Ugh. It’s hard to believe that the pandemic has been raging for six months now, and nothing’s getting any better. And speaking of the pandemic when we were done at the grocery, we ran into Target…

While we were at Target, I got an eye exam…

If you remember a while back, I cracked my glasses right in two. I’ve been going without glasses for a minute. And today, I ended up getting two new pairs. One near-sighted pair with blue light filter for working on my computer and one far-sighted pair for driving and watching movies. Both of them compensate for my pretty considerable astigmatism. I’m so excited for my new glasses. They’ll be ready in a couple of weeks. The best part is that between my insurance and health savings account that both pairs of glasses cost me a grand total of $10. How cool is that? And I also got this new little bluetooth speaker…

It has a really good, full sound. Also full was my belly after eating a BLT with turkey bacon and Canadian Bacon for lunch…

It looked like it was raining off in the distance…

And good evening from Northside…

This evening I trimmed the grass in our little front yard…

And our little front yard flowers are really flourishing…

And of course, we played some ball in our backyard…

Mack was waiting for us upstairs at the top of the steps…

When we got upstairs, we watched the Grizzlies lose the the 8/9 play-in game to the trailblazers in the NBA bubble. It was a really good game. I love the Griz but I think the Blazers will give the Lakers more problems. And it was be awesome if the Lakers got knocked out of the playoffs.
We also watched Louisville City beat Loudoun 2-0.

It was a pretty darn good Saturday. I can’t wait for my glasses. πŸ˜€πŸ—“οΈβ€οΈ

Burgers to start the weekend.

We always let the dogs out in the backyard before we take them on a walk…

Good morning from Northside…

Our flowers in our front yard are looking really pretty…

I’ve been pulling weeds everyday. Hopefully someday our little front yard will be weed-free and the clover will just take over. Speaking of flowers, how pretty is this one that we saw on our dog walk this evening?

And good evening from Northside…

After work was done and after we walked the dogs tonight, we walked down to Tickle Pickle to get burgers and shakes for dinner….

Tickle Pickle makes vegan shake that Genifer just loves. I’ve been in love with their regular strawberry milkshakes…

Genifer ordered the Eagles chicken sammich…

And I ordered my Buns ‘n Roses burger with extra cheese…

Tickle Pickle is delicious. And it was a great way to start the weekend. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„πŸŒ»πŸ”β€οΈ
